A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

R.I.P. Sgt. Jeremy R. McQueary

Marine Sgt. Jeremy R. McQueary
Died February 18, 2010 serving during Operation Enduring Freedom

27, of Columbus, Ind.; assigned to 2nd Combat Engineer Battalion, 2nd Marine Division, II Marine Expeditionary Force, Camp Lejeune, N.C.; died Feb. 18 while supporting combat operations in Helmand province, Afghanistan.

(The following was taken from of Feb. 28, 2010) NASHVILLE, Ind. — Hundreds gathered in Nashville this afternoon to pay tribute to fallen Marine Sgt. Jeremy R. McQueary, who was killed earlier this month in Afghanistan.

The hour-long ceremony at Nashville’s Seasons Lodge and Conference Center included a Marine Honor Guard with a 21-gun salute, and videos honoring the 26-year-old McQueary, his wife, their baby and his tour overseas.

During the one of the videos, his mother Deborah Kleinschmidt, Columbus, wiped tears from her eyes; bagpipes played “Amazing Grace” at one point during the ceremony.

McQueary’s wife, Rae, sat surrounded by Marines who had served or befriended McQueary at some point in their lives.

One of them was Patrick VanOstran, 26, Jacksonville, N.C., had toured with McQueary in Iraq and was a close friend.

“He had a magic about him that would brighten all situations,” he said. VanOstran also recalled the day McQueary called him to tell him he was a father.

“He was uncontrollable,” VanOstran said. “That’s all he talked about, was being a father.”

McQueary’s son, Hadley, is now five months old.

Rep. Baron Hill, who represents the 9th Congressional District, and officials from Gov. Mitch Daniels’ office also were on hand for the day’s event. Also present were members of the Indiana Patriot Guard Riders, who were requested by the family.

There was no viewing; McQueary’s body had been cremated.

McQueary, who was killed by an explosive device Feb. 18 while clearing bridges and roads, was the 28th person with Indiana ties to die in the war in Afghanistan.
